NEW YORK CITY FASHION WEEK FINAL MODEL REVIEW AND TRAINING FOR HIGH FASHION MODELS 2016 | FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2016 FROM 11:30 AM TO 1:30 PM (EST) MANHATTAN , NEW YORK: this event gives undiscovered talent an opportunity to be seen and pick up some valuable tips for breaking out in the model industry. when i envision this event i imagine a slew of models herded in a beige colored room all ranging in ages 0 – 22. everyone is sitting, standing, leaning, and avoiding eye contact. some are accompanied by parents. some are hunched over their cell phones, scrolling through social media and glancing around the room for an available spot to plug in their cell phone charges. all are impatiently waiting to be called to be prodded and judged in front of an aloof panel. No thank you. this would be the perfect time to grab a latte or touch up my lipstick.

create your own event

CREATE your own event! are you a creative with a fashion week event that deserves to be in the spotlight? EVENTBRITE makes event planning and management simple and gives you the freedom to create your own local event!

The events have been narrowed down, tickets have been bought and it’s time to finalize your look of the night. Throw on a dress, grab some booties and toss all your precious belongings in a clutch. Mix and match for funky to sexy to subtle and sweet show stopping looks.

Dresses: When heading out for events one of the simplest looks that can look like a lot of work is the dress. Flared, playful, patterned and modern to create a look that requires minimal accessories and maximum panache.
Boots: There’s every chance that the pavement of NYC will be slick with snow and ice. Perhaps your Uber will pull up to the curb and you’ll be met with slush and puddles. When making your way from show to show  opt for boots that will keep your toes warm and dry.

 

Clutches: ✓ cell phone, ✓invites, ✓tickets, ✓Lipstick, ✓liner, ✓blotting papers, ✓sunglasses. Put all of your important items in one convenient spot in a small, compact clutch that won’t get in the way of sliding in and out of the uber or the subway. find a clutch that makes a statement or go with something more subtle and subdued, but whatever you do, don’t leave your ticket or invite at home!

Have fun!
